I hope you are having a wonderful start to your Saturday (or whatever time of whatever day it is when you’re reading this). I’m doing great today, I had my first really solid night of sleep all week last night and goddamn, what a difference that can make!
After a pretty chaotic June and July, August felt like such a turnaround. It was chaotic in the sense that I’m pretty sure I’ve singlehandedly kept the energy drink industry alive with how busy I’ve been, but it wasn’t chaotic in the sense that I had a whole bunch of turbulent shit going on in my personal life. The crushing malaise of lockdown aside, the past month has been exciting. We sent AG #145 to print and had it hit shelves, I picked up a third job – I’m back at BLUNT, now wrangling the site as its editor – and I got my second jab, so now I can look forward to being able to get out of the house again once NSW hits 70% vaccination (which they reckon will be around mid-October, but I’m not getting my hopes up there.
Here’s everything I got up to around the Internet last month – and a track from the debut Binki EP, Motor Function, which came out a few weeks ago. I am totally fucking obsessed with this record – it feels like a big, explosive bedroom-pop smoothie of Bloc Party, M83, Kid Cudi and Gorillaz. I’m gonna be mad pissed if this dude doesn’t end up headlining festivals by the end of the 2020s.
